After cheering our voices off for Gilas Pilipinas, we now have the PBA, NCAA, and UAAP going full throttle. And if that isn't enough for your hoops-loving hearts, we've got the 2013-2014 NBA season creeping nearer. Cue orgasmic visions of crossovers, in yo' face jams, humiliating blocks, and spine-tingling buzzer-beaters, and the questions on whether or not KB24 is still the Black Mamba and if the Dwight Howard-powered Rockets will go far.
Yes, basketball, especially in the Philippines, never stops!
But if you want to go beyond the boob tube, you can now enjoy loads of basketball action right on your smartphone and tablets. And no, we're not talking about just watching it on your handset. Because, thanks to app makers and henyo developers, you can also now enjoy playing virtual hoops via your mobile devices with entertaining basketball apps. We list the best of them below.
1. Basketball Shoot
A simple yet entertaining game that involves putting the ball through the hoop in less tries, Basketball Shoot gives you a realistic feel by employing old school shooting physics in the gameplay. You can also switch "venues" and even unlock different styles of basketballs while a combo feature lets you know you're on fire.

With iBasket, the objective is to make as many buckets as you can in only 90 seconds. Yep, it's a time-based game which, for us, gives it an excitement boost. Just imagine nailing that three-pointer with only one second left. Feeling Kobe! Also, you'll be able to learn a few tricks (i.e. make three consecutive shots or more for more points) to rack up your score even more in less time.
